At the crossroads of epochs and cultures, Croatia is a multi-faceted gem of medieval cities, modern sophistication, and unspoiled coastal islands. Located between central Europe and the Balkans, Croatia boasts a wonderful Mediterranean climate in the south and along the coast. In the 7th century, the region was actually two principalities, Dalmatia and Pannonia, and to this day, the western coast is still referred to as the “Dalmatian Coast.” Visit the island of Hvar and the port city of Split in Dalmatia as well as the UNESCO World Heritage cities of Dubrovnik and Zagreb.
This independent vacation lets you explore Croatia's natural splendor and rich cultural heritage according to your interests and at your own pace. Hotel stays, train and ferry travel, and a sightseeing tour in each city are all prearranged but the rest is up to you. English-speaking hosts in Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb will be glad to offer advice on excursions, dining and entertainment.
Begin in Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic." The city's Old Town is a wonder of preserved medieval architecture. Your guided tour includes the Rector's Palace, Onofrio's Fountain, and the Dominican and Franciscan monasteries. Spend a free day in Hvar enjoying its beautiful beaches and lively nightlife. In the port city of Split, see remnants of the city’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, and Diocletian’s Palace, a well-preserved fortress that was once encircled by 750-foot walls. Conclude your trip in the capital city of Zagreb with its Baroque atmosphere, open-air markets and great shopping. Sightseeing of the Upper Town and Lower Town includes the Stone Gate, the Cathedral of Mary’s Assumption and the main square of Jelacic.
